Well from what i see, works great but as usual drains battery more than i want. I suppose it comes from the device itself. Without using it, data off but call on, battery lasts 2 weeks;2% each night. Data on drains a lot more.

Is it safe to flash Shedkerneo beta 5 kernel over stock one from firmware XEO-G903FXXU2BRH2?
Also is it safe to TWRP stock recovery, all using flashify?

:update

tried flash zip supersu 2.82-rc5 with error can't mount /data and other errors

Help with xposed on rooted but stock MM that wont boot loop? tried installing directly onto my current lollipop installation via xposed installer app, and it bootlooped on me. so i restored my backup but id like to try with MM. Its time for a fresh start anyway and too many things have ended lollipop support

MM post is in this thread totally crossed out but the lollipop one is still open... does this mean there are 0 working versions or ways for MM, or can i use the same process as lollipop? Is there any workable way? or a link to a step by step guide? looking to ultimately use rootcloak

hello,
you have to install first the original MM version. Then only the mod one. Loolipop is ended. Do not use it.

    TIPS

    1/ How to use Titanium Backup with ExternalSD (sources)

    -Go to Preferences -> Backup Folder Location.
    -Click on Storage provider at the top (it's not obvious that it's clickable).
    -Click on DocumentProvider storage. That will take you to a File Manager interface. You may have to click on the 3-dot menu on the top-right to enable the (external) SD card to be shown, then click the menu lines in the top-left and select your SD card, and click the "Select" at the bottom right. (You don't have to select your Titanium Backup folder here, you're just using this to get access to your SD Card.)
    -Now you should be back in Titanium Backup and you can browse like you used to to get to your preferred backup folder on your external SD Card
    I warn you that using this Document Provider storage is much slower - at least it seems so for me. But, it seems that it's the only way to go for now.
    WORKING !

    MAKE YOUR OWN CUSTOM ROM

    Some remarks from @LastStandingDroid
    Remove the how to dirty flash xposed instructions, it's outdated and isn't recommended since twrp is available.

    Also easier to use is osf mount & Linux ext2/3/4 read since you can mount the system.img as read/write after convert it. Disk internals only allows read access afaik.
    Creating a modified system.img is rather going to give you a faster flash and boot time on first flash will be improved greatly
    instead of using disk internals.

    Also you should never dd a system while booted.

    - Using a modified recovery

    - Using a decompress system file
    How to proceed :
    1/ First is to download a firwmare image from sammobile for our phone.
    2/ You will need to decompress the file.Then you have access to system.img but you currently cannot decompress it (well you can but file properties will be different). Download this and decompress it anywhere. But the "system.img" in this folder and launch sparsechunk2img.bat.
    You will now have a systemfix.img. Download and install DiskInternals linux reader.
    3/ Once done, create an "IMG" folder on your PC and a "system" folder in it. Open Linux Reader, select "open'" and choose your "systemfix.img". On the right select all files, make a right click and select "save" and choose to save in the created "system" folder before.
    4/ Time to use the deodex tool from @svadev. Decompress and put it in a empty folder (ex: C:\NEODEX) and launch SVADeodexerForArt.exe. Choose the "system" folder created before and tick all 3 boxes and wait till deodexing's completed. Now you have in C:\NEODEX all deodexed files which are in app, framework and priv-app folder. You can now replace original folders with those from NEODEX folder.
    5/ You will have now a deodexed rom
    6/ Time to make the zip file....
    ....to be continue

    - Using an image instead of just put all files in a zip.
    How to proceed :
    1/ As we need to dump from phone, it is better to begin with clean system. So install latest official firmware and make a factory reset (save all needed file before as sdcard will be formatted). (see howto above)
    2/ Use Chainfire Autoroot to root the system (see howto above)
    3/ Install TWRP Recovery (see howto above)
    4/ Now you will have the latest firmware rooted and a custom recovery. Time to remove bloatware and applications not needed using "Debloater".
    As our Galaxy S5 Neo is not able to enable "block mode" when using "Debloater", you can just select "remove". You can refer to the list of removable apps/bloatware at the end of the thread.
    5/ You have now a debloated, rooted rom. But odexed. If you want to remain odexed, time to build img so go to "point 13". If not, see below.
    6/ To have deodexed files, you first need to decompress the tar downloaded file. Then you have access to system.img but you currently cannot decompress it (well you can but file properties will be different). Download this and decompress it anywhere. But the "system.img" in this folder and launch sparsechunk2img.bat.
    You will now have a systemfix.img. Download and install DiskInternals linux reader. Once done, create an "IMG" folder on your PC and a "system" folder in it. Open Linux Reader, select "open'" and choose your "systemfix.img". On the right select folder "app", "framework", "priv-app" and build.prop file. Select "save" and choose to save in a the created "system" folder before. You need to move the build.prop file from "system' folder to the "img" folder. (here is the structure : IMG/System/App, Framework & priv-app folder)
    7/ Time to use the deodex tool from @svadev. Decompress and put it in a empty folder (ex: C:\NEODEX) and launch SVADeodexerForArt.exe. Choose the "system" folder created before and tick all 3 boxes and wait till deodexing's completed. Create a "system'" folder there and put the deodex "app,framework, priv-app" folder in it. (Structure : NEODEX/System/App, framework & priv-app)
    9/ Power off you phone. Go into recovery mode (push and maintain volume up, menu & power button).
    10/ Once TWRP Recovery activated, on PC, maintain "Right Shift" & make a "Right Click". Select "open command prompt".
    11/ Type :
    adb devices (to see if your phone is well connected)
    adb remount
    adb shell
    cd system
    rm -rf app
    rm -rf framework
    rm -rf priv-app
    Exit
    adb push c:/neodex/system /system/
    12/ Wait till it is finished. Then type "reboot". Now you have a debloated, deodexed, rooted rom.
    13/ Time to build your system.img. Again go into recovery mode (Push & maintain Volume up, menu & power button).
    On your desktop, maintain "Right Shift" & make a "Right Click" then select "Open Command Prompt" and type :
    adb shell
    su
    dd if=/dev/block/platform/13540000.dwmmc0/by-name/SYSTEM of=/sdcard/system.img
    14/ Once done, type "reboot". Then copy this system.img on your PC.
    Download this script (thanks @LastStandingDroid).
    Extract it on your PC and put the "system.img" in the decompress folder. Recompress it in a zip file and copy it on your sdcard.
    Done. Happy flash !

    - Method by LastStandingDroid

    @WILMANS2M

    quick sum up how I did it
    Tools Needed:
    osf mount http://www.osforensics.com/tools/mount-disk-images.html (has option to read/write images)
    linux disk internals: http://www.diskinternals.com/ (better option if you want to extract, should keep permissions/symlink
    ext2fsd
    download http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd/ for adding read/write ext2/3/4 support in Windows

    Download desired firmware
    extract system.Img
    convert it with Simg2img.
    open osfmount locate to the converted spare image (raw) and press open.
    before clicking OK on the bottom (or pressing enter) make sure to untick read/only in order for you to edit the system.img

    If you feel that the image size is too huge you can decrease the free space. I think osf mount can do it. but I resized it in Linux :)

    read http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/36123/how-to-resize-ext3-image-files

    you might need to write -f before the size I did it and it worked.

    now it's time to sleep 2 am

    Tips:

    1/ How to revoke stupid lag issues in some apps (Thanks to @LastStandingDroid):

    - open start manager > battery > detail and de select the items you want to stop being optimized.
    (this is similar to doze mode on 6.0 if not implemented it early)
    - Remember to disable DWFS or what it's called the Samsung bs performance booster for some minutes until we reduce performance

    2/
    Information:

    There was a report of force closes after modifying SM-G903F ROM, earlier in the thread.
    The force closes only happen if you delete "Google Web View", since the new play store overlay (and nearly every other app overlay) is based on that app (in app purchases, news etc.).

    Don't touch Google Web View and everything will be fine.
